I've never seen any other reports of that.  If /boot is idle, it
should certainly not be touched by raw IO to another partition.  About
the only thing I could think of is either an IDE driver problem (those
have been depressingly common, recently), or you were accidentally
using /dev/hda instead of /dev/hda6 for raw IO (which would likely
mess up /boot in a big way).

Cheers,
 Stephen
